Should make for interesting times in the future. Already there has been a Dual 2.1 transplant into the Mini Single core... not sure how heat will effect, but interesting times!

Is the SATA out a std. plug? No funny business? Would be cool if one could set up Master/Slave on the ATA bus, but I expect that is not as easy.

as soon as Intel drops the prices (50%) on the core duo chips (see zipzoomfly) these upgrades will become widespread ($669/$416 for the 2.16/2.0 at present time) ...... combined w/Amazon discounts (heavy) on the $599 Mini solo Look for it soon......and I'd expect very quick Apple upgrades on the Minis........they should have went with the 2.0 processor right off the bat
